REBOUND PLUS COURSE NOW AVAILABLE AS AN ONLINE COURSE FOR THOSE WHO ALREADY HOLD A RECOGNISED TRAMPOLINE COACH CERTIFICATE
'Rebound Plus' is a special needs trampolining training course which is an add-on module to the Rebound Therapy practitioner certificate. The course equips candidates to teach trampoline exercises up to Winstrada grade 8 to people with disabilities.
Pre requisites for the ONLINE version of the Rebound Plus course:
* The candidate must have completed the Rebound Therapy practitioner course and have an up to date certificate (The Rebound Therapy course can also be taken online if required.)
* The candidate must have a trampoline coaching course that is recognised in their country.
The cost of the online Rebound Plus course is £189 (plus vat if you are a UK or EU citizen)
The course is significantly different to a mainstream trampoline course as it is focused on using teaching techniques that are more accessible to people with disabilities. Therefore many more progressions and supporting techniques are used.
This course will equip you to enable your students with disabilities to continue their progression into trampolining, subject to their abilities.
It will also enable you to attract more people with disabilities into your club or centre.
Many trampoline coaches also use the techniques and additional progressions they learned from the Rebound Plus course when teaching their mainstream classes; particularly when teaching younger children.
The course comprises four steps:
1) Study of the reading material
2) Study of the video of practical aspects
3) Study of the progressions for key elements
4) Practical assessment by video. ((Candidates will be asked to get someone to film them on a mobile phone demonstrating the teaching points of key skills.)
You may complete the programme as quickly or as slowly as you wish. Each time you complete one step, we will send you the next step.
When all steps are completed you will have completed the programme and we will send you your course completion certificate and validation number.
This is a distance learning programme and you have access to the office by email at any stage for advice and clarifications.

WE ARE REGULARLY ASKED FOR ADVICE ON STRATEGIES FOR RUNNING SESSIONS now that restrictions have eased.
How do we sanitise?, How do we accommodate social distancing issues?, Can we help with risk assessments? etc.
We have set up a private Facebook group for qualified Rebound Therapy practitioners. It is called 'Let's talk about Rebound Therapy'
Lots of information is on there including video clips, risk assessments, sanitisation advice and more. The address is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1069261010113201
You will need to have the validation number from your certificate handy to join.
If you don't 'do' Facebook, and are a qualified practitioner, you can email us for advice regarding the above on email@example.com
UPDATE ON CHANGES AND CONTINGENCIES TO ACCOMMODATE RESTRICTIONS AND EASING OF RESTRICTIONS. Whilst schools and clubs were closed, the Rebound Therapy training course continued to be provided as an online / distance learning course.
The online course was originally developed to provide training and validation to individuals and small groups in countries that do not have their own tutors. However, during the restrictions, we made the online course readily available in the UK also.
The online course in the UK has been very well received, and many schools and clubs have asked us to make it permanently available. An often cited reason (amongst others) is the occasional need to take the course at short notice when there is not time to wait for a place on a local open course.
Therefore we have decided to make the online course available permanently in the UK. So now there are three options for the Rebound Therapy practitioner training course:
In house where a tutor comes to your school or centre to provide training for your staff. (More information here: https://reboundtherapy.org/courses/inhouse )
Open courses - these are courses held at various locations throughout the UK that anyone can attend. (More information here: https://reboundtherapy.org/courses/open )
and Online. (More information here: https://reboundtherapy.org/courses/online )
With the practical courses, (in house and open) we have introduced a number of changes and contingencies to accommodate social distancing where necessary. All tutors carry a laptop with videos of all exercises that require physical support. Where staff are not able to work closely together, the tuor will show the video to the candidates and will fully explain what is going on, and why. Each candidate will receive a copy of all the video clips after the course, together with a video record of all the key practical aspects covered on the course.
Relevant parts of our risk assesment are read to the candidates prior to the course.
If you wish to see our risk assessment, you can view and download it here: https://reboundtherapy.org/other/RA_for_RT_courses_re-Covid19.doc
You are welcome to use relevant parts of it to help with writing your own risk assessments for use in your Rebound Therapy sessions now that restrictions have eased. We can also provide you with advice on sanitisation.
It should be pointed out that the online course covers every aspect of the practical course except the setting up and putting away of trampolines. For those of you with sunken trampolines or permanent facilities, this may not be an issue. For the rest of you, we do provide a half day or twilight trampoline handling workshop which can be provided in house at your school or club.
If you booked staff onto an online course, you may wish to discuss with us having a trampoline handling workshop. We run these as inexpensively as possible because we endeavour to organise them immediately before or after a full course that we are running in your area. Therefore there is less contribution towards accommodation and travel costs required.
Please feel free to contact us by phone or email if you would like to discuss any aspect or option for Rebound Therapy training.

IATP (The International Association of Trampoline Parks) recommend that all trampoline park staff worldwide attend the Rebound Therapy training course. As well as the important safety aspects covered on the course, including contra-indications, increased risk and precautions, completion of the course equips parks to offer sessions fo disability groups which provides a much needed community service and helps parks fill their quiet times during the day.
